Power Couple: Spring's Must-Try Color Combinations

A couple of years ago I went through a huge color-blocking phase when it came to my outfits. Not only did I mix colors, but I really enjoyed mixing patterns as well! It was just so much fun! 
When I saw Christina Shanahan's article on spring's seven "must-try who-knew" color pairings in the April 2016 InStyle magazine, it just really took me back to those good ol' colorful days! 
Therefore, I thought I'd share three of the color pairings from the article that had inspired me and made me miss incorporating some color into my more neutral outfits nowadays. 
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

Pale Blue + Aubergine
How great is this color combo transitioning from fall/winter into spring?! 
I love how the pale blue brightens and adds an interesting element to the deep purple!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Tangerine + Tan
For this color combination, you have to understand that I hate, absolutely despise the color orange. 
However, this is such a beautiful color combination that I am actually warming up to the idea of it. 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

Cobalt + Peach
Another beautiful combination incorporating orange, but just a more muted and gentle version of orange.

Have you noticed a pattern here? It looks like mixing bold colors with a pale or pastel shade is quite lovely! Maybe you were already aware of this, but the article has definitely opened my mind to a few more ideas. 
As someone who is currently all about the neutrals and soft color tones, it's great to be reminded that I can still incorporate my brighter tones from my color-blocking phase. 

What color combinations are you looking forward to rocking this spring/summer?! I'd love to get more inspiration in the comments below!

    1. I think this color combo would look great with a summer tan, as well!
